    They’d rather it be in game only behind achievements that less than 20% of players would have the skill to get so they could then complain that the most awesomest, raddening, highest class of the highest elite designed badass mounts can only be obtained by being good or having to pay to get carried.

    Afaik the 6-month stuff is added to the store at a smaller price, AND available for gold-to-Battle.net balance purchase. No FOMO.

    I'm more annoyed with the FOMO shit they throw into the game than what they add to the store.

    The fomo was in relation to magetower-like things. It just forces people to subscribe now and do it with every character that they might ever want to play or miss out on it forever.
    #1) MMO-C should be glad that the British Empire is no more, because they'd want a piece of all the copium trade here.
    #2) Angry players come to the forums to complain about the game... but what loser only comes to the forums to complain about the forums and its users?
    #3)Felating Blizzard too eagerly may lead to oxygen deficiency and worst case asphyxiation. Long-term effects range from delusions up to cerebral necrosis. #4) The WoW playerbase doesn't deserve housing.

    One of the bundle pics has a new armor set. Stands to reason they'll add one soon since it's been a while.

    I'm thinking more "seasonal" shit. Mage Tower was around long enough that anyone wanting it should've obtained it just fine.

    Also, systems they add that puts players perpetually behind if they don't play non-stop. There's catch-up, but I'm a veteran of 11 years and I'm feeling overhwelmed after being away from the game for 2 months...

    I have. Hard to have a conversation about FFXIV double dipping with its cash shop on any other site besides this forum because that fandom grew up with microtransactions and takes them for granted. Even on this site, you have people defending the cash shop, saying "the proceeds help fund development of the game!" when FFXIV already makes hundreds of millions every month off of box purchases and subscriptions.

    This is just the industry, WoW's subscription has helped keep the most egregious stuff out but everybody knows at this point the subs are down and blizz already was sweetening the deal with time gated cosmetics for 6-12month subs and for expansions , the one outfit is from the last 6 month sub deal, I'd rather pay for a cosmetic outfit than have to lock in 6 months of gametime i might not use. I'd actually love more cross character/class sets added to the game for completing normal content but they're ultimately going to follow industry trends

    considering that classes, storytelling, game mechanics & content is possibly worse than ever the transmog store is the lesser of fires atm.

    OP, and others agreeing with him and people who have made threads like this before, I have a genuine question for you: why the fuck do you care what other people spend their money on?

    They're preparing for the game to go b2p

    After they added p2w with applause it seems a bit pointless to complain now. Thousands of boosts are bought a week and trade chat and lfg are overrun to being near useless with ads.

    People complaining about transmog are fighting a war that has already been lost.

    FFXI is still p2p, have cash shop and older than WoW )

    You seriously want Blizz to remove transmog from shop when game is full of p2w for like 3x expansions and Blizz didnt do anything with it.

    I simply dont care about cashshop stuff or transmogs. If ppl want this stuff, let them buy it. Good for the game, increases the chance of future content that might fit my preferences better than cosmetics.
    If ppl dont want cashshop stuff, they wont buy it. No one is forced to buy stuff there.
    But if you ask me, they can add 10 new tmog items per month. There will be enough ppl buying them. This means more profit for blizz, and some more ressources for game development.

    As mentioned before, ppl who dislike the cashshop stuff, just dont buy it, it wont change your game

    It looks like there might be a new outfit that comes with the sparkle pony in that datamined image. Honestly, I am not worried until you have to use premium currency to transmog. Some games do that and wow very much could. It's funny how people talk about how great of a deal ff14 is and you only get 1 free character re-customization. The wow barbershop is free. Gender-change used to cost cash but it became free in Shadowlands.

    These transmogs are way more visually striking and most likely will offer more particle effects and other enhancements than in game items. Honestly everyone needs to protest this crap before it gets out of control. These are new appearences that can be used for unique events like Mage Tower 2.0 or other game feats of strength.....


    How are people ok with this?
    Most people are not okay with it, other than the usual suspects like real life andy who can only play for 34 seconds per week and some pet and transmog farmer who dont even know how the game works.

    But its never going away even if every player was against it. Blizzard not only dont give a shit about their players but it seems they are fighting against their playerbase.
    People need to realize that the game developer from gamers for gamers is dead and its all about making the most money now.

    This is a fight against windmills. Dont waste your energy trying to change a crooked company.

    A lot of players honestly don't care about p2w a lot grew up with it. They do care about cosmetics though so it ruffles their feathers. So long as p2w is a two step process they won't mind it.

    Like I said I wanted to make sure. I don't really read any FF14 stuffs to have known. I know plenty how decry one but ignore the other.

    WoW and 14 aren't even on my radar when FPS games and Path of Exile are getting away with being absolutely scummy. My energy complaining is better spent on those games.
